Expert advice and inspirational stories on coming back (stronger) from injury!
One of the greatest challenges an athlete may face is dealing with an injury, but you don’t have to go through it alone and there are things you can do to turn this obstacle into an opportunity.
Sustaining an injury can be one of the most stressful occurrences you will face during your athletic career. From the moment you sustain an injury, to the moment you return to training and competition, the injury experience can send you on an emotional roller-coaster. During your injury recovery, the focus is often primarily on healing your body and not necessarily on the “mental rehab” you need; on building back trust and confidence in your body and your performance. Research shows that the use of mental skills training during injury recovery can benefit both your physical and mental recovery.
If you find yourself struggling with your feelings of confidence, holding yourself back out of fear of re-injury when you’ve been medically cleared, having a hard time trusting your body, or struggling with any of the mental and emotional aspects of your recovery— there is a way forward and Carrie can help. Sometimes you need some extra tools and support to get through this challenging time. Contact Carrie for more information on how you can help you build your resilience and confidence during your injury recovery.
Injuries affect every athlete, from the elite Olympian to the weekend racer. In the moment, a traumatic crash, a torn muscle, or a stress fracture can feel like the most devastating event possible. While some athletes are destroyed by the experience, others emerge from their recovery better, stronger, and more confident than ever.
Weaving together personal narratives from athletes, scientific research, and the specialized clinical expertise of mental skills coach Carrie Jackson Cheadle, Rebound contains more than 45 Mental Skills and Drills athletes can use at every phase of their recovery process.
Injury and other setbacks are inevitable–but with training, you can learn to overcome them skillfully and confidently, the same way point guards and forwards practice rebounds.
